Peach Park and Refurbish Buffet

Oh yes, recently the junkin' road carried my friend and me to Clanton, Alabama, home of the
Peach Park!


Chilton County is known for its delicious home grown peaches!  Peach farming is a big business! And the results are simply scrumptious


Each year Clanton throws a  parrr-tee! ("We like a party!", says my friend.) 

There are parades, music, carnivals, and of course peaches! And no, good, down home, southern town would be without its share of queens and princesses for the event!

At the Peach Park, photos of present and past winners are displayed! (It's really a big deal! And many people flock to this area during the event!)

The Peach Park is a destination for most traveling I65 between Birmingham and Montgomery!  Children know that this will be a stop along the way. (and don't ask how much farther?





There is a large area for running around, shopping and EATING!


Sandwiches, fruits, and vegetables are available for purchase. It's a great farmer's market!

BUT...my friend and me love the peach cobbler! And of course what could make it better than a scoop (maybe two) of vanilla ice cream! Yum, yum!

Traveling? Make the Peach Park one of your stops! You are in for a real treat!





Also, I want to share this refurbished buffet with y'all today!!  I found it for a real deal (should I say steal!!), for cheap! I know! It had to be mine! It was dirty! (Really dirty, I think it must have been stored in a barn for I found lots of straw inside! Maybe it had been a nest? Ummm?)



After cleaning, I layered on oops paint I found at Lowe's (Don't you just love Lowe's? I can wander around and around...)


The top is a chocolate brown and the rest is more a blue than my photo shows... 
I decided to use the same handles, just upgraded with a little paint!


On top, please notice the chalkboard tray I painted! I'm really loving these! They make great gifts!

Well, there you have it! Peaches and a buffet...

Have a Blessed Day!! And see ya down the junkin' road!!

I live less than an hour from Canton, AL. Love that big peach! Did you get to go to any antique shops in the area? Petals from the Past is just down the highway in Jemison, AL. You should go there if you have not; it is a wonderful nursery specializing in heirloom roses. Thanx for sharing. Your furniture piece was a nice re-do. Don't you just love to up-cycle! Visit me sometimes over at the palace.
